Algeria’s constitutional council has concluded on Sunday it will not be possible to hold presidential elections on July 4 as planned.
The constitutional council cited a lack of valid candidates, saying it had received only two candidates, who were deemed invalid, Reuters reported.
The council did not set a new date for the presidential elections.
It asked interim President Abdelkader Bensalah to organize a vote at a later date, state television said.
Bensalah had been appointed as interim leader until July 9.
